  • Down a Dark Road (Kate Burkholder, Bk. 9) by Linda Castillo; narrated by Kathleen McInerney (Macmillan Audio). Award-winning and seasoned narrator McInerney has read all eight previous novels in the “Kate Burkholder” series. Here she brings her skillful voicework and expert use of tone to the latest installment of the Amish-set thrillers, this one burgeoning with questions of murder.
  • Defectors by Joseph Kanon; narrated by John Bedford Lloyd (S. & S. Audio). A cat-and-mouse game pitting two estranged brothers against each other unfolds in this story set in the 1960s against the backdrop of the Cold War–era of spies and secrets. Narrator Lloyd is known for his fine creation of characters and bringing pivotal scenes to life, intensifying the atmosphere of the story and giving weight to its dialog.
  • Murder Games by James Patterson & Howard Roughan; narrated by Edoardo Ballerini (Little, Brown). A quickly paced thriller about a serial killer leaving clues with his victims gets star treatment as blockbuster narrator Ballerini, who routinely receives rave reviews and has taken home an Audie Award, performs this newest collaboration of Patterson's, an author Ballerini frequently gives voice to.
  • The Force by Don Winslow; narrated by Dion Graham (Blackstone Audio). One of the buzzy books of summer features a narrator beloved by listeners. Graham, the winner of multiple Audies and acclaimed for his expressive characterizations, is a great pick for Winslow's intricate and sweeping cop novel of high stakes and suspense.
  • Indecent Exposure by Stuart Woods; narrated by Tony Roberts (Penguin Audio). In the 42nd “Stone Barrington” novel, politics blend with the personal as mover-and-shaker Barrington finds himself overexposed and in danger. Longtime-series reader Roberts well understands Woods's protagonists and the feel of his stories, delivering here the expected goods.
